Joyful Countdown


Joyful Countdown


I have ten tasks to do today,

A formidable goal stands in my way:

(Wash the car,

Fix the gate,

Pay the bills

Now out of date.

Vacuum rugs,

Stop the leaks

Dripping now

For several weeks.


The back hall door,

Plus a group

Of several more.)

After doing one my view

Is that I’ve only nine to do.

Then eight and seven and what do you know

I’m down to two and one to go.

I find, when tasks loom up like knolls

There’s happiness in diminishing goals.
